Hello everyone,

I have installed Gentoo with a working GUI on this laptop before, but now I am having an issues with x-server. I have followed the guides, built the drivers, and I have been troubleshooting this for three days. So it is time for some fresh eyes.

In make.conf:

VIDEO_CARDS="intel i965" // Don't know if this is acceptable

I have been trying to compile and use i965, but all I get is i915. I would like some input here too if anyone knows about this.

The kernel options are all set as the xorg guide says, frame-buffers disabled, Intel things enabled. Intel kernel mod setting enabled.

If anyone has an idea where to go from here, please let me know. Also, if I can provide any additional info, please let me know. Thank you in advance to anyone who responds!

Here is the latter part of my Xorg.0.log:

This is still way too characteristic of not having KMS enabled.

Doublecheck your KMS, make sure it's on by default on boot. You'll know it when the screen text changes sizes after the initial program loader completes... If you don't have it set on boot, you will have to either set it in the module loader or set (I believe) i915.modeset=1 in lilo/grub kernel options.

These chips all use the same driver. While I'd like to say "Ivybridge" for my i5, I just say intel...

Thank you for the reply. Your help is much appreciated.

I checked and recompiled the kernel (genkernel atm). Still failed. This is what I have under the graphics drivers driver section:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* /dev/agp (AGP support) // I don't have an advanced graphics port, but the guide said to have it enabled.
* Intel

* Direct Rendering Manager

M Intel 8xx/9xx/G3x/G4x/HD Graphics

* Enable modset on intel by default

M lowlevel Video output switch controls //Just left this alone, it was on before.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These are the ONLY options I have set in the graphics driver section. I will try the grub kernel option tomorrow, I'm going to bed.

Also, does menuconfig always bring up the default options? I've had to load my alternative config every time.

Menuconfig should pull up the settings you last saved...

I don't understand, you have these drivers as modules or in kernel? Is the text font shrinking during boot, from 80x25 resolution to something much higher during boot?

If it's not saving, this is not a good sign, it should be saving the options. Are you building in /usr/src/linux and sure you have write permissions?

my G965 computer has these options set in .config :

CONFIG_DRM=y
CONFIG_DRM_KMS_HELPER=m
CONFIG_DRM_TTM=m
CONFIG_DRM_I915=m
CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS=y
CONFIG_VIDEO_OUTPUT_CONTROL=m
CONFIG_FB=m
CONFIG_FB_CFB_FILLRECT=m
CONFIG_FB_CFB_COPYAREA=m
CONFIG_FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT=m
CONFIG_FB_MODE_HELPERS=y
CONFIG_FB_TILEBLITTING=y
CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_LCD_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=m
CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_GENERIC=m

During boot, text font will shrink fairly early on during boot as Gentoo initscripts will load the DRM/KMS driver.

Yes to all those questions. I figured out it's only because I was using an alternitive config file save.

Anyway, I'm a moron. I forgot to add i915 to /etc/conf.d/modules. -.- So I really didn't have a problem and that's why my configureation was fine but not working. Helps when you load the driver right? Haha.

Thanks for your time and sorry for my mistake. I have my GUI and everything is working 100%.
